In today’s society there are winners, and there are losers. That may seem somewhat harsh, but it’s the reality of the world we live in. Human beings by nature are ego driven and competitive, it’s in our nature to always compete with others, even on a subconscious level, no matter how trivial the matter.
A winner looks up to where he or she is going. A loser looks down at those who’ve not yet achieved the position he or she has. A winner respects those who are superior to him and tries to learn from them. A loser resents those who are superior to him and tries to find fault…
“Winners and losers aren’t born, they are the products of how they think.” – Lou Holtz
The Winner is always part of the answer; The Loser is always part of the problem.
The Winner always has a program; The Loser always has an excuse.
The Winner says, “Let me do it for you”; The Loser says, “That is not my job.”
The Winner sees an answer for every problem; The Loser sees a problem for every answer.
The Winner says,” It may be difficult, but it is possible”; The Loser says,” It may be possible, but it is too difficult.”

A Winner makes commitments; A Loser makes promises.
Winners have dreams; Losers have schemes.

Winners stand firm on values, but compromise on petty things; Losers stand firm on petty things, but compromise on values.
Winners follow the philosophy of empathy: “Don’t do to others what you would not want them to do to you”; Losers follow the philosophy, “Do it to others before they do it to you.”
Winners make it happen; Losers let it happen. – Author Unknown
